LINCOLN — A Lincoln man has been sent to prison for possessing pornographic pictures connected to a child prostitution case.
Brian McCarthy, 34, was sentenced Tuesday in Lancaster County District Court to six to 10 years in prison on four counts of felony possession of child porn in April. Judge Karen Flowers gave him 263 days credit for time served in jail.
McCarthy was arrested in June after Nebraska State Patrol investigators found pornographic images of a 7- and 14-year-old girl on McCarthy's cellphone. He had previously served prison time for felony sexual assault on a child in Richardson County in 2000.
He was the fifth of six men arrested in connection with Michelle Randall, 36, who is serving 92 to 120 years in prison for prostituting the girls.
